I don't like this separation of test plan and workbench node too.
I lost my data a couple (maybe dozen) of times, so now I'm afraid to use 
workbench node any more :)

Fortunately, it's not necessary. A proxy server node can be placed under 
a thread group node. And the thread group node can be disabled so that 
it doesn't run.

So I'm just pressing "Ctrl+S" from time to time to be sure the whole my 
testplan is saved.
